The Sound of Music

  • and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. Then the herald cried aloud, 'To you it is commanded, peoples, nations, and languages, that whenever you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music, you fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king has set up. Whoever doesn't fall down and worship shall be cast into the middle of a burning fiery furnace the same hour. Daniel 3:3 WEB

    Three Hebrews stood before a giant golden idol that was ninety feet high and were commanded to bow down and worship it when the music began to play. It was a direct violation of the law of God to do this, but everyone around them seemed to be doing it. The Hebrews refused to worship the idol and the angry king had them thrown into a fiery furnace, but God delivered them out of it and they were not burned.

    When the music began to play, thousands of others just worshiped the idol like they were told. It is interesting that they were only required to worship this golden image when the music played. Ninety-nine percent of the time, their life went on as normal. It was a trigger, when you hear the music, you must do this.

    Have you ever had something that only popped up at certain times in your life and you felt almost powerless against it? You were so certain, once again, that you had beaten this and put it behind you. Then a year later the music played, and you did it again. It is like the enemy has a small music box in our pocket that he can open, and then something dark drops over us.

    There is hope for if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:36). Jesus brings light into the darkness and He can deliver us from anything. It is simply a pop test: 'Are they ready for the next level? I guess not.' It is just a test and I believe the breakthrough that we have been waiting for comes after we ignore the music.

    God understands this and He is patient with us. When you stumble, get up, repent, and move on, again. Don't give up on God for He won't give up on you. Don't give up on life. One day God will set you free from this and when the music plays nothing will happen, but until then, you must just get up, dust yourself off, and keep going.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please set me free from the things that hold me, and burn the iniquity out of me. I thank You that there is still hope and that Your mercy is renewed each morning. Wash me and I will be clean. Take away the music box. Fill me with Your Spirit and give me the mind of Christ, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18).

Heavenly Father I thank you for my sanctification process that has removed the things from my generation that used to manifest in my life. I thank you for your patience with me during that challenging period and am truly grateful that the deliverance process has made me free indeed. In Jesus mighty and awesome powerful name I pray. AMEN
